Our Panelists

Mary Batistick - BCUG Member since 2007, Red Bank, NJ

Retirement has provided many opportunities for using my favorite computer programs as a casual user. This includes organizing information for volunteer activities, hobbies, and home life. The programs help in my position as volunteer Treasurer and Membership Chairperson for a small non-profit, in my roles as both a singing member and a volunteer in a large semiprofessional chorale, and also in my past 6-years as Board Secretary on my homeowners’ board of trustees. During my professional career in financial services and later in performance auditing, desktop computing only played a role in my later years. I had no formal computer education, and I don’t have a technical computer background.

He has co-hosted the Azure Podcast, a weekly show that talks about cloud technology, for over 9 years. Over the past 15 years, he has volunteered at the Church of St. Catherine in Holmdel, advising them on various technology-related matters.

I am a carpenter who specializes in finish carpentry, trim, built-ins, and interior repairs. I got my first computer in 1986, an 8088 with 10 megabyte drive. I fell in love with learning how to use it.
